Worked Fine, Then It Didn't 7/2/2009 7:12:06 AM

Pros: - Worked fine but didn't last
- A little noisy, high-pitched whine

Cons: - Power supply failed @ about 10 months old. I expected a longer life out of this unit.
- The drive itself is OK though, works with a different PS/cable.

Overall Review: The unit abruptly stopped working at < 1 year old after fairly infrequent use (backup drive @ work.)

I swapped out a different power supply / cable from a different drive and it's working, but a replacement PS/cable is not that much less than just buying a new enclosure, unfortunately.

poor quality 6/17/2009 12:43:58 PM

Pros: was cheep when i got it, worked well for 4-6 months. looks ok, not that bad to install the drive into

Cons: i bought this enclosure almost exactly a year ago, and used it for windows image backups of my tablet. at first it worked fine, then it would start getting stuck doing these backups. so i just copied files as my backups. then it would start getting stuck with large file transfers. now it gets stuck with any reasonably sized transfer. if you listen to it, you can hear the hard drive spinning down, or half spinning down, or something. i suspect this problem is either because a dying ac adapter (which is too light to be of quality, and sometimes makes a high-pitched wine) or the fact that this enclosure does not provide the sata drive with 3.3V (orange wire) power along with 5V (red) and 12V (yellow).

Overall Review: i have the black colored version of this enclosure

Low quality, Low life 2/11/2009 2:17:28 PM

Pros: Easy installation and plug in. Nice and simple vertical stand.

Cons: HDD loosely falls into case, cheap materials and assembly. Quite fragile and breaks easily when dropped one foot high. Screws did not fasten well to the adapter.

Overall Review: This is a poor product from Rosewill. I have always been a fan of Rosewill's cases, webcam, and various laptop accessories. Not a good price for a simple product.

Junk 2/6/2009 12:48:04 PM

Pros: Newegg returns process.

Cons: SATA cable that came with unit was DOA; design is too cheap to be functional in a business enviroment.

Overall Review: Spend a little more and get something functional out of the box.

doesn't work 1/31/2009 7:50:00 PM

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: I've had the enclosure for less than two months and when I turn it on, the hard drive sounds like it's beginning to spin but can't sustain, and oscillates between spinning and not spinning. The drive isn't recognized and I have to cycle the power multiple (5-10) times to get it to start properly. Hard drive works fine when I connect it internally to my desktop. It may be a problem with the power supply included with the enclosure. I'm worried that if I keep using the enclosure it may ruin my hard drive.

Nice, Quality Unit! 1/30/2009 4:00:09 PM

Pros: Sturdy, extremely east to assemble. The plastic stand is a bit flimsy but that's no big deal it's only a little stand the drive slides into. Everything fits together nice and snug,

Cons: Haven't found one yet.

Overall Review: I don't exactly know what people are talking about with the bad reviews, this was extremely simple to put together, all of my screws lined up fine, it's just a matter of getting the drive in the right position inside the enclosure, plastic slides cover the screw holes well , very sleek and smooth design. I'm doing a high load transfer right now (150gig) the drive has been working underload of about an hour and it's nice and cool. If the drive falters under high load as one person said... have you ever stopped to think it's the drive and not the enclosure? the drive has tons of tiny moving parts and looses quality over time from use. the enclosure however consisters of a power supply and a chip board to covert SATA to USB theres no deterorating parts whatsoever . Makes a nice enclose for a backup drive. Without a fan though I wouldn't recommend using it as a high load daily drive.

Poorly made, but cheap 1/30/2009 6:47:49 AM

Pros: Very inexpensive. Solid, provided you get a unit that has all the holes drilled in the right place and you plan on putting a drive in it and leaving it forever.

Cons: I already had one of these, and I picked up a second. The second had the mounting holes for the drive drilled in different places on each side, and the tiny threaded metal insert in the back-plate stripped out of the plastic the first time I tried to tighten a screw in it.

They're poorly made units, but then I doubt I should expect much for what I paid. I suppose I could RMA it, but it's not worth my time. *smile*

Paper weight. 12/8/2008 1:36:38 PM

Pros: Price, mildly simple. Makes a good paper weight.

Cons: Not sturdy. Screws did not line up, doesn't screw in nicely.
The USB slot for the cable is not a fit, so my cable always comes loose, consistently disconnects me and often, it does not connect back to my computer even if I hold it there.

Cheaply built.

Overall Review: If the structuring/design was better, it would function well. Too bad it doesn't. I'll have to find another enclosure if I want to connect my external.
